I shoot plated out of my 9mm pistols due to the fact that one is a Glock. For .45 ACP I cast my own bullets. Price for 9 mm would be about the same if I cast for the 9mm. Price is $40-$55 dollars per 1,000 depending on cost of primers.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
